Shepherd lovers….lookee at this boy!! He’s having a blast at his foster home in New England!!
He’s fostering with other dogs and his human foster grandchildren come to visit and they love him and he loves them!!!
He loves his doggie friends as you can see and has now discovered the swimming pool!!!
He was born to a Dutch Shepherd mom and a Malinois/German Shepherd dad. Rescue stepped in when he and some of his siblings weren’t handed out to friends by the owners.
They are all so sweet and love attention. They stay very close to their people when out and about. They love to play with other dogs. Super smart puppies! Cuddling is their favorite thing to do after they get their play time done. These pups are great couch buddies and love to sleep on you. Energy level is medium-high.
He does have some resource guarding of his food and toys that needs to be worked on with his new family.
They will need families committed to raising large breed pups and ideally with malinois or shepherd experience!

PLEASE - Think long and hard before adopting a puppy - consider the lifestyle change this puppy will come with - he cannot be crated for more than 3-4 hours at a time until he’s older, puppy proofing your home will be necessary, puppies scratch and nip so if you have small children, can they handle this?? Training will be so important in this puppy’s life, do you have the time??
Please review this checklist for socializing puppies - do you have the time - ask yourself before adopting.
